: that includes strong pro-gun politicians likeke senator joe manchin of west virginia, who famously carried and shot a gun in an ad for his 2010 campaign. manchin has told the president that, after newtown, he's open to reasonable gun control. do you think senator manchin's willingness to discuss gun control now, is that significant? >> if joe manchin is doing that, then more moderate members, for sure, on this particular issue are really thinking it over.king >> reporter: what kinds of laws do you think possible to pass congress right now? >> i think the background check is possible. and i think magazine and assault weapon bans are possible. >> reporter: what about that argument, that the assaultul weapons ban didn't preventen something like columbine. it would not have prevented cho at virginia tech. >> the fact is no law is going to be perfect. >> reporter: the argument, ms. t brady, though, is that, don't pass them because they don't work. >> but they do help. if they save any lives, they're worth it. >> reporter: brady believes that gun control legislation will still be extremely diff
members i think are going to start to feel differently. when you get a joe manchin of west virginia coming out and saying "i hunt, i don't need more than three bullets in a magazine" and you get other long-standing strong proponents of the second amendment saying it's time for some changes, we're moving into a different world. >> brown: david kopel, do you think the politics have changed here or do you expect -- well, there certainly will be challenges legislatively. will there also be challenges legally? >> there will certainly be legal challenges because one important thing -- the way things have changechanged is we now have the supreme court having affirmed that the second amendment is an individual right and the core of that individual right is self-defense. so joe manchin is welcome to his opinion-- which he's stated to people from his own state just a few days ago-- that he thinks the only reason people should have guns is for sports. but that's not what the second amendment says. the second amendment says that self-defense is the core of the second amendment. so when you talk about

"raising the debt ceiling does not authorize more spending. it simply allows the country to pay for spending that congress has already committed to. these are bills that have already been racked up, and we need to pay them." president obama warns that if the debt limit is not raised or used as leverage by republicans, markets would go haywire, interest rates would rise, and checks to military veterans and people on social security would end. gop senate minority leader mitch mconnel reponded by saying, "the president and his allies need to get serious about spending, and the debt-limit debate is the perfect time for it." traders will get their first opportunity to react to comments at the market close yesterday by federal reserve chairman ben

like joe manchin come out and say, listen, this is a time we put everything on the table but even they have back pedaled to a certain degree so it is, i mean, that is very hard road that i think this president has. >> what would be their motivation then, for example, when the nra claims that they have seen an increase in their roles by thousands of people who are now joining the nra and inspired by what they see as this battle ahead? what would then motivate someone like a joe manchin who say everything's on the table but maybe not when it comes to specific guns? i believe that heitcamp said it's extreme ideas. >> that's the folks the president has to talk to. i had an idea to go to these people's districts, that is something that you have seen him do when he was trying to get money passed around the stimulus package and among -- about infrastructure. that's something i think he will have to do. take the fight to the folks who might be movable. this idea that we should continue, you know, to have a conversation with folks on the fringes, i don't think that's going to move the ball

washington. joe manchin said, quote, i'm disappointed the president did not recommend the creation of a national commission on mass violence that i have proposed. a national commission can build the consensus we need for real action, backed not only by gun control advocates, mental health experts and entertainment industry executives but also by law-abiding gun owners. >>> the white house is worried that if this fight becomes too much about the assault weapons ban, and not enough about measures, which are more politically possible, they'll have a problem. they want to keep people focused on fights they can win. background checks, things like that. republicans have unsurprisingly responded negatively, including florida senator marco rubio. >> by the own admission of the white house, what they have proposed to do would do nothing to have prevented what happened in connecticut or colorado before that or any of these other places where this has occurred. i actually think the president and doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment. >> the white house i
it will be hard but you see people like joe manchin willing to work on some things. he's a touchstone for a lot of democrats who look to people who are supporters of gun rights. i'm wontderring when you have the people who do push back on certain parts of it and that does include joe manchin and people like harry reid who basically has said he's not superulatively supportive of the president's plan. let's put it that way. i'm wondering, ryan is this because they live in those gun states, they fear the nra? tell us about the difficulties of getting some people like harry reid on board. >> right. it's because they understand the politics of guns. the problem for gun control advocates has never been broad popularity. a majority of people generally support gun control. they support an assault weapons ban. you showed those polls. there's broad support for these kinds of things. the problem isn't intensity. people who support an assault weapons ban don't -- in the past have not voted on their support of an assault weapons ban. you know, they would say that, yes, given the choice between having a ban
democrats in congress like joe manchin are acknowledging an assault weapons ban would have a hard time passing. >> assault weapons alone, on just guns alone, will not in the political reality we have today will not go anywhere it has so be comprehensive, candy. that's what i tried to tell the vice president and told everybody, it has to be a comprehensive approach. >> we'll talk much more about this with senator manchin and former utah governor jon huntsman straight ahead on "morning joe." >>> today marks one month since the mass shooting in newtown, connecticut. town officials are holding public hearings on what to do with sandy hook elementary school and whether students and staff should ever return to the building. some newtown residents are joining the national conversation on gun policy. >> reporter: one month after police converged on sandy hook elementary school, the newtown police chief has a message for the white house. >> ban assault weapons, restrict those magazines that have so many bullets in them. >> reporter: he said the gunman had more fire power than his officers two h
